Weighing-in at 1475kg and packing a punch of 23kN of compaction capability, the Ammann ARX 12 is ideally suited to working in close-proximity environments.
One of the key selling features of the Ammann ARX12 tandem roller is it's ability to work flush up against a vertical surface, such as a kerb or wall. Thus eliminating the age old hassle of having to finish the job off with a hand operated compactor such as a plate. Not only saving time but money as well, it may mean the ARX12 can complete the job without the need for any additional compactors.
The ARX 12 is fitted with a pressurised water sprinkling system featuring an interval timer and a three-stage filtration system, supplied from a large-capacity 110-litre water tank, providing enough water for at least one day's work.
Power is supplied to the ARX 12 by a three-cylinder Yanmar 3TNV76 diesel engine producing 15.0kW (20.4hp) and has a maximum road speed of 8kph.
The machine is packed with features that not only make it a easy to handle but make it safe to operate as well.
The following is taken from a recent review of the ARX12 roller, we will have one on our Executive Hire Show stand next month, so come and have a look if attending.
"Upon selecting one of two engine-speed settings on a lever situated on the right-hand side of the steering column, travelling in a forward or reverse direction is performed by moving the electric-drive lever in the direction you want to travel.
The lever is situated to the right of the operator and also houses the drum vibration controls, which are operated by a blue and a red button on the side of the lever.
A clever bit of mechanical engineering automatically ceases the vibrating function momentarily before the machine responds to the command to change direction (forward-reverse or vice-versa) eliminating those annoying 'scallops' that customarily get left in the work surface when traditional vibrating rollers change direction.
At the risk of sounding clichéd, we found the Ammann ARX 12 to be packed with features too numerous to mention."
